mp3 to bmu converter

I used the mp3 to bmu converter and while the program lists the song as one of the bmu files it doesn't show up when I try to pick it in the toolset. What's wrong?

Did you add it to the ambientmusic.2da file as a new entry?

Yes/No?

NO = You must make a new line in ambientmusic.2da that includes your music track, then add your ambientmusic.2da to a hak file. Then associate your .hak with your module.

YES = Did you copy it to the nwn/music directory?

Yes/No?

NO = The file must exist in your nwn/music directory for the toolset to pick it up, even if you have modified your ambientmusic.2da

YES = Then the filename does not match the name associated to the ambientmusic.2da file.

I've done both but still it does not play.

ISSUE = File was not saved to the appropriate 128kbs 44kHz stereo file format.

FP!

My experience is that it needs to be in mono and not stereo.

Music dwon't play from a hak file. It needs to be in music.

@Cleitanous He's asking about ambientmusic.2da not the actual music file.

@Bootlebat In answer to the question about adding that file to a hak file you need to run nwhak.exe. It is found in your NeverwinterNights\NWN\utils folder.

Still doesn't show up. What exactly was I supposed to write in the ambientmusic file?

You have got a copy of the custom content guide V3 haven't you? That should be of help here.

That just says to follow some guide on bioware's site which doesn't exist anymore. Anyway what I did was.

1. converted mp3 to bmu

2. got the ambientmusic.2da file

3. added a line for my new song (no idea what number to put for the code though)

4. made a hakpack containing th new ambientmusic.2da file

5. Added hakpack to module

 

Despite all this the file doesn't show up in the area music at all.

Filename must match that of the line in ambientmusic.2da.

Here is an example.

95        111909         mus_wc_morfen      ****               ****       ****       ****
96        ****              mus_my_song        ****               ****       ****       ****

Your filename would then be named:

mus_my_song.bmu

This file would then be copied to your \music directory.

STILL doesn't work. The converter says something about the bitrate not being constant could that be why?

Ok, I finally got the music track to show up in the options however it doesn't actually play when I'm in the game why?

 

Update: It works with one track but not another what is wrong?

You can add multiple lines to the 2da. Ensure that each line has a unique line number.

You have to use the wayback machine. Try looking at this page from there which is the archived version which gives the original tutorial.

Here's a working line from a custom 2da -

100       ****            mus_cmp100           ****                  ****         ****         "CMP: BG - Main Theme"

Now look at your last line. Do you see your entry in the second column? It needs to be just **** (4 asterix not 5 with a number attached). Remember be careful, computers are literally stupid. If NwN doesn't recognise what you are trying to do it will ignore it.

Thanks Tarot for covering the name of the track. I totally forgot that the original Bioware music names come from the .tlk entry, so yes, any custom music added requires a name to appear in the selection dropdown box.

Sorry about the confusion, Bootlebat.

Load it up in an audio software program such as Sony Soundforge and properly set the settings during the file save. Audacity might be able to do this as well.

Starting at line 124, there's two extra "****", so everything else after that will be offset.

At line 126 on the other hand, two "****" are missing.

And starting at line 127, there's an extra "****" (each line should contain 7 values, including the row number).

That 2da looks a bit of a mess. Everything looks fine up to and including line 123 - each line has the requesit 6 columns ignoring the line numbers. Line 124 only has only has 4 then there are 3 columns on the following un-numbered line. line 125 also only has 4 columns followed by 3 columns on the following un-numbered line. All the lines from 127 to 195 have 7 columns then the following un numbered line only has a single column. Finally all the lines from 196 to the end also have 7 columns. Remember you only want exactly 6 columns for each line. You need to sort out your column problem first before retrying. Once you have got those columns sorted it would be a good idea to run this 2da through a tidying program (if you are on windows try the one I wrote). That way you see such problems as soon as they arise.

The format of a 2da file is that each line consists of a fixed number of columns. This number is determined by the header line. Count the number of items on that line. Each line where I've already told you there are too many columns, remove the last '****'. So that is lines from 127 onwards up to and including line 195 remove the last '****'. Then for lines 196 to line 215 remove the last '****'. Next remove the three un-numbered lines (between 124 and 125, between 125 and 126, between 195 and 196).

Paste the following onto the end of line 124 (include the leading space but not the single quotes) - ' **** ****'

Paste the following onto the end of line 125 (include the leading space but not the single quotes) - ' ****  ****'

You should now have a fixed 2da file.

It still doesn´t work despite Tarot Redhand´s fresh 2da?

I´d say rename the old ambientmusic.2da and put it in an extra folder, far away from NWN and your current project.

 

Now open the windows text editor, copy and paste Tarot´s 2da. Remember to save it it as *.2da and not as *.txt

Make sure that you typed ambientmusic correctly. Sounds extremely stupid, but it´s just a savety measure.

Put the new ambientmusic in an empty hak, save

Add the hak to your module. Save, close the toolset.

Open the toolset again...

 

PS: If you want to you can add one of NWN´s "Stingers", that´s the the-battle-is-over-now outro, to your battle theme. Otherwise the battke theme simply fades out. They´re attached to every battle theme in the ambientmusic.2da. Simply copy & paste one of them.

I just reread the bioware tutorial (the one I linked to above) and found something. Which leads me to ask, did you bother to download and read it? If so you would have come across this section -

Editing ambientmusic.2da
 
2. Copy the "ambientmusic.2da" file out of the "source" directory where you have installed Neverwinter Nights (The default location is "C: \NeverwinterNights \NWN \source").
3. Add a new line to the end of "ambientmusic.2da" with you favourite text editor. Here is a sample showing the last two lines, and then our new line 57 added:
 
Description Resource Stinger1 Stinger2 Stinger3 DisplayName
0 61901 **** **** **** **** ****
. . . . . . .
. . . . . . .
. . . . . . .
55 66882 mus_theme_morag **** **** **** ****
56 67545 mus_tavern4 **** **** **** ****
57 **** mus_my_mod_theme **** **** **** "My Module Theme"
 
Look at that last entry then look at the 2da that I fixed the errors in. You will see that you have not included anything under DisplayName. This is important because according to the Custom Content guide -
 
As of version 1.26 of NWN, Bioware added a new column to ambientmusic.2da – DisplayName. If the Description column contains ****, then the Toolset will use the text in DisplayName for the name of the file. This is how labels in .2da files should work!
 
So you are not seeing anything because you have not told it what to show.

Ok your not gonna believe this but, the reason it wasn't working was I kept saving the nw version of custommusic.hak to the main directory rather than the hak folder
